Phenomenal performance. Includes an interesting and smokin' rendition of Morning Dew, and a great cover of Dylan's "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You.

Thanks. Truly. There was a time in another place where rock gods wanted jazz and vice versa. It was sometimes wonderful. I find it interesting that he uses a pick the whole time in this vid. When I see current stuff, he almost always uses that finger picking sweeping sort of style. Do you know how that evolved? It always looks like a little bit of magic to me.

It is magic. Here's a perfect example. Jimi who?

Wes Montgomery is the earliest guitarist I know of who played with his thumb like that. Though he never played as fast as Beck. But he was equally as impressive a guitarist to me.

Thanks again. And there's that incredible young lady again on the bass. Dang do I feel old.

I guess my curiosity is where or why he started with this technique. I mean he wasn't all that young in 72 by any means.

from the wiki:

"Beck stopped regular use of a pick (plectrum) in the 1980s. He produces a wide variety of sounds by using his fingers and the vibrato bar on his signature Fender Stratocaster, and he frequently uses a wah-wah pedal both live and in the studio. As Eric Clapton once said, "With Jeff, it’s all in his hands"."

The Jeff Beck live at Ronnie Scott's DVD is amazing. At YouTube search on Jeff beck and Ronnie Scott and you'll find a lot of this.

Thanks for this. I'm a big fan.

I've always preferred his version of 'Morning Dew' to the Dead's - flame away folks.

I would guess that Jeff's picking style evolved as a side product of the right hand fretboard tapping technique that he now uses.
I would think that it would probably feel quite wrong to use a pick with that kind of technique.
